Donate for clean water

And against microplastic pollution in our environment

Your donation helps to reduce plastic pollution of oceans and drinking water. Microplastics and pollutants such as PFAS - also known as Forever Chemicals - are an omnipresent threat to the health of all living things. Although their research is still in its infancy, they are already suspected of damaging entire ecosystems and promoting diseases such as cancer.

With your contribution, you are taking preventive action by enabling us to prevent unwanted inputs into the environment through education and awareness programs as well as research into new technologies.

By the way:

Donations are fully tax deductible. Up to the limit of 200 euros per year, the submission of the account statement to the tax office is sufficient (Section 50 (2) No. 2 letter b EStDV), from contributions over 200 euros per year, we are happy to issue a donation receipt. This will be sent to you in January of the following year. To receive a donation receipt, please include your address in the purpose.

Stop Microplastics

Microplastics and micropollutants are so problematic because they are often too small to be effectively filtered out of wastewater. As a result, they enter the environment and are now almost everywhere, from Arctic sea ice to soil and air.

This is why basic research at the beginning of the problem - the entry of pollutants into water in private households and industry - is particularly important. As a non-profit limited company, we work on methods and processes that help industry and the wastewater sector to filter out pollutants and plastics before they are returned to the natural water cycle.

As a non-profit company, we use your donations to develop and publicize more efficient solutions against microplastics. The treatment of water is an important contribution that individual players can make to tackling the problem. After all, today's wastewater is tomorrow's drinking water.

More education for more clean water

Education is another important pillar for clean water in the future. That is why we are committed to education and information on water cycles and pollutants. Your donation will help.

In this way, we can reach people around the world with modern, virtual educational spaces and raise awareness of this problem. This results in more sustainable behavior, but also new ideas and innovations.

Clean oceans and clean drinking water

Microplastics in the world's oceans are a recurring topic, as larger quantities of plastic also break down into microplastics in the oceans. These tiny particles end up back on our tables via the food chain through fish and shellfish.

Education and removal processes that reduce the input into the sea help to break this cycle. Groundwater or bank filtrate, which is extracted from drinking water, can also contain microplastics.

Education, awareness raising and responsible research are an important key to enabling a microplastic-free diet.

Microplastics in industrial wastewater

Steigende gesetzliche Regulationen für Polymere, Kunststoffe und Mikroplastik, hohe Kosten für Wasser, Abfälle, Energie, Chemikalien und die Instandhaltung von Anlagen sowie komplexe Verschmutzungsszenarien - Unternehmen, die in ihren Prozessen viel Wasser, Polymere und weitere Chemikalien einsetzen, stehen vor der Herausforderung ihr Umwelt-, Abfall- und Ressourcenmanagements neu auszurichten. Mit dem Verfahren Wasser 3.0 PE-X® steht erstmals eine adaptive Komplettlösung für ein nachhaltiges und kosteneffizientes Sustainability Upgrade für die industrielle Wasserbehandlung zur Verfügung. Der Schwerpunkt des Verfahrens, das auf Green Chemistry, low-tech Anlagen und kreislaufwirtschaftliche Prozesse setzt, liegt in der Entfernung von Mikroplastik. Bei geringen Anschaffungs- und Betriebskosten verbessern sich dabei nicht nur die Wasserqualität, sondern auch Ressourcennutzung, Abfallaufkommen und Energieverbrauch.

Forever Chemicals – PFAS (Part 2)

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) – synthetic “forever chemicals” – have become a substantial and pervasive global challenge. They have managed to infiltrate diverse ecosystems, contaminate water sources, and accumulate in human bodies. They are incredibly persistent and have significant adverse effects on both human health and the environment. Acting now to unravel the complexity of the PFAS problem and implement effective solutions is critical to prevent further accumulation in the environment and secure a healthier future for generations to come. Part two of our PFAS blog series will address the health risks associated with PFAS and the EU’s recently proposed restriction.

Microplastics in wastewater treatment plants

Microplastics and highly viscous oligomers (including soluble polymers) cannot yet be removed within the purification stages of a wastewater treatment plant. For this reason alone, sewage treatment plants are considered to be emitters of microplastics into the environment. Read more in our blog.
